Capture / Destruction Efficiency

Volatile organic emissions test programs performed on ink and coating processes require further analyses to determine fugitive and captured emissions. The following analytical methods are used to support capture and destruction efficiency studies:

    • Method 24 - This method determines the volatile matter content, water content, density, volume solids of paint varnish or lacquers, or other related coatings.
    • Method 24A - Utilized to determine the VOC content and density of solvent-borne (solvent reducible) publication rotogravure inks and related publication rotogravure coatings.
